Barack Obama Is My President

New Direction - Acrylic on Canvas

Last night, I watched and I wept as history was being made in the United States with the election of the first, African American President, Barack Obama. After feeling so discouraged with a sense of hopelessness
over the direction our country was heading these past 8 years, I find a renewed faith and hope. It is such a great day for America and a great day for the African American community.

After a very long time, I can say with a full heart, I'm so proud of being an American. I'm so proud of the people who rose up into one voice to make this change a reality. I feel hope for my young son who is a black American. I see his future as brighter. I feel hope for all people in this great country that we are finally moving in the direction to not judge an indiviual based on their race but rather on their character and merit.


  1. Couldn't agree with you more! It's such a monumental day. And now, the same way grass roots helped him get elected, we have the opportunity to join together to help him be the great president he has the potential to be!!
    Nice portrait :)
